    Indeed, it should be a very productive and promising event, Dan, and thank you for the announcement. As a sneak preview, and with program and participants/keynote speakers’ updates to follow on the ISLBC website, be advised that featured contributors include several key sport industry stakeholders from the US and the international sport industry, very knowledgeable Faculty colleagues, experienced practitioners in law and business, international sport federations representatives, CAS arbitrators (including Ad Hoc panel members for the Olympic Games and the World Cup), NCAA representatives, and what is currently morphing into an international sport labor summit, with basketball union representatives from both sides of the pond leading the way, other sports contributing, and we are going to great lengths to find appropriate representatives from female sports’ unions… At tough times ahead financially for all constituents, the issues discussed will assist our attendees carefully form their strategic approaches, develop research and practice directions accordingly, and esp. the labor sessions will hopefully even yield some “rules of engagement”, commonly acceptable practices and principles to which players, agents, club administrators, et al. need to subscribe in view of the challenges our industry faces.
    I need to add that the submissions for the conference from Faculty and especially from PhD/JD/MBA/Grad students have been impressive, along the lines of contemporary issues, rich and profound in theory, norm-challenging, very powerful and exciting for further comparative interdisciplinary research across several disciplines.
    More over the website over the next few weeks. Thanks again for the plug-in, and best wishes for the summer season.
